KDWB-FM 101.3 Minneapolis MN KISS Neil Bogart 1978

This was the national radio commercial which promoted KISS’ new “Double Platinum” album in the spring and summer of 1978. It includes the voice of Neil Bogart, founder and president of Casablanca Records. Neil was monumental in the success of KISS. Sadly, he died at the age of 39, less than 4 years after this commercial aired. There was also a video version of this spot which aired on local and network television.

This was received from my residence in Apple Valley, Minnesota. A Sears AM/FM/cassette monaural unit and Realistic Concertape C-60 cassette were used to make the recording.

    A fire at the station, during the Ron Block midday show on November 30, 1969, knocked KDWB off the air for a few days. FM in February 1976 after it was offered a rather generous deal that included WYOO-FM and the building in Eagan that housed both stations, for $750,000.

    So Doubleday owned the Eagan facility? Interesting. I always assumed that Entercom owned it since WAYL-AM 980 transmitted from there.
